" Rosicrucianism is a spiritual and cultural movement which arose in Europe in the early 17th century after the publication of several texts which purported to announce the existence of a hitherto unknown esoteric order to the world and made seeking its knowledge attractive to many. The mysterious doctrine of the order is built on esoteric truths of the ancient past, which concealed from the average man, provide insight into nature, the physical universe, and the spiritual realm.The manifestos do not elaborate extensively on the matter, but clearly combine references to Kabbalah, Hermeticism, alchemy, and mystical Christianity."

Buenos Aires, Argentina Ediciones Argentinas S.R.L. 1976 1st Edition Thus; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with No dust jacket as issued Illustrated by Tomas Ditaranto 
Very rare printing. Tapas Wood (mulberry wood) cover with leather backstrap. Very small chip to wood at bottom edge of cover. Hardly noticable. The cover is high gloss with goucho sitting and playing guitar. "Martín Fierro, also known as El Gaucho Martín Fierro, is a 2,316-line epic poem by the Argentine writer José Hernández. The poem was originally published in two parts, El Gaucho Martín Fierro (1872) and La Vuelta de Martín Fierro (1879). The poem supplied a historical link to the gauchos' contribution to the national development of Argentina, for the gaucho had played a major role in Argentina's independence from Spain.The poem, written in a Spanish that evokes rural Argentina, is widely seen as the pinnacle of the genre of "gauchesque" poetry (poems centered on the life of the gaucho, written in a style that evokes the rural Argentine ballads known as payadas) and a touchstone of Argentine national identity. It has appeared in literally hundreds of editions and has been translated into over 70 languages. Beautiful prints inside book. Rare.; Illustrations, Prints; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 311 pages

The Last Sanctuary  (Author Signed), Holden, Craig
172 Holden, Craig The Last Sanctuary (Author Signed)
Delacorte Press 1996 0385312091 / 9780385312097 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket Signed by Author
Author signed. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. From the author whose literary debut, The River Sorrow, was hailed by The New York Times as "a haunting, highly original thriller [with] one powerful surprise after another" comes a riveting new novel that could have come from today's headlines--at once a heart-pounding, chillingly realistic thriller and a dark, complex plunge into the human psyche. Rarely has a first novel received the kind of extraordinary critical acclaim garnered by The River Sorrow, Craig Holden's spellbinding tale of an innocent man accused of murder, caught in a nightmare of terror and survival.With The Last Sanctuary, Holden dazzles us once again with a mesmerizing thriller that introduces another good, ordinary man turned fugitive--this time a Gulf War veteran living on the edge of society, falsely accused of murder and plunged into America's dark underworld of armed militias and terrorist cults, running from the cops, federal agents--and from his own tortured soul. The cat and mouse chase across North America's last wilderness--the soaring mountains and glacier-strewn shores of Alaska--is brilliantly cinematic. The complex relationship between the fugitive, Joe Curtis, and his nemesis, a female Native American ATF agent, is superbly rendered and utterly unpredictable. And the novel, at once nerve-shattering and beautifully written, is as topical as Waco and Oklahoma City--and as universal as our own worst nightmares. ; 1.3 x 9.1 x 4.6 Inches; 370 pages; Signed by Author
